Rumsfeld's World This was based on some silent workprint footage ("A-Bomb Blast Effects") that I found online at the Prelinger Archive. The soundtrack is from Erik Satie's Ogives. I decided to build this film after I saw what Rumsfeld was doing in our conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere - to me it seemed like he belonged to a previous generation, and the workprint footage seemed to strike a chord in my consciousness.
